Ink - Alter Egos Exposed

Hosted by Hugh Dillon, star of Flashpoint, INK: Alter Egos Exposed is a smart and stylish 10-part documentary series that explores the art, genres and deeper themes of comic books and graphics novels. Produced by Summerhill Entertainment for IFC Canada, it also aired on Sky Arts in the UK and is negotiating distribution in other territories.

INK draws on a spectacular range of interviews, including legends Stan Lee, Grant Morrison and John Byrne, and innovators Jaime Hernandez (Love and Rockets), Joe Sacco (Safe Area Goražde), Mike Mignola (Hellboy) and Darwyn Cooke (New Frontier).

Meanwhile... INK digs into themes from simple "Heroes" and "Villains" to "Death and Resurrection" as a story device and how "Gender and Relationships" play out in what was once just a kid's medium.

And there's much, much more. Devoted fanboy or casual reader, you have to get INK-ed.
